Oriental rugs: Art you can walk all over

Persian carpets and other “rugs of the East” are firmly established as elegant design elements — subtle and often-unheralded — that loudly whisper refinement and good taste. Historically, many of us think of them in terms of the imagery of medieval Europe: They were considered great status symbols in the 1500s and, some 200 years beyond, were too precious to put on floors; instead, they adorned tables, chests and walls.

In the Garden: Keep a close eye out for the Nasty Nine

Noxious weeds and nuisance weeds are unsightly, degrade pasture land, reduce crop yields, destroy native habitat and are, well, noxious — they can hurt your feet. For example, think cheat grass in your socks or your dog’s fur, or puncture vine wounds in feet and bicycle tires.
